Good Early Detroit, Michigan Coin Silver Tablespoon, Charles Piquette

Offered is a good American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Charles Piquette, silversmith and gold pen manufacturer of Detroit. Charles is one of two sons of Jean-Baptiste Piquette, silversmith of Montreal, who came to Detroit circa 1803. Charles and his brother, John B. Piquette, were trained by their father in the silversmith's profession, but it is more likely this spoon was manufactured by someone else and retailed by Charles Piquette, as his focus seems to have been on the...

Philadelphia Coin Silver Dessert Spoon with Rare Unpublished Mark

Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon made by Philadelphia silversmiths Jehu and William L. Ward, dating to circa 1837-50. The unusual aspect of this piece is the maker's mark - an oval mark similar to others used in by other makers in Philadelphia, but very rare for the Wards. The mark is mentioned by Hollan in "Philadelphia Silversmiths", but not one example had been found, until now. This piece measures about 7 3/8 inches in length and weighs a solid 32 grams, or about one... Click for details

See page 250 of the book "Delaware Silver" for a very similar piece identified as a salt spoon, and note several pieces with the same mark (the "H" is worn off this spoon, but the letters in "ROBINSON" match the ones in the book minutely). This spoon is in very good condition overall, with a good period engraved script monogram and a worn but legible maker's... Click for details

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern by Baldwin Gardiner, working circa 1827-48 in New York City. Although this spoon is fairly nondescript in style and has a worn and scratched surface, it also happens to have an interesting armorial and motto - used by a major branch of the Morris clan of Wales, specifically the descendants of Lewis Morris, Lord of the Manor of Morrisania, New York, who arrived in New York in 1674 and was a progenitor of a large branch of...

Offered is a fine American coin silver christening or dessert fork bearing the mark of Columbus, Georgia jeweler and silversmith Samuel B. Purple, working alone in Columbus from about 1845-57. This fork is a pattern example and probably dates to the latter part of Purple's career; it is assumed Purple retailed rather than manufactured this piece. This fork has a good clear mark as well as a well-executed period script monogram. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about... Click for details

Stockman & Pepper Coin Silver Tablespoon with Unrecorded Mark

Offered is a fine early American coin silver table spoon by the partnership of Philadelphia silversmiths Jacob Stockman and Henry J. Pepper, who advertised as gold and silver thimble manufacturers during their brief (1828-31) partnership. While the partnership had a lot of output, and its work is still commonly seen, the mark on this spoon is unrecorded and seems to be extremely rare. In almost two decades of involvement with American coin silver, it is the only example I've seen, and my focus... Click for details
